Sisters Andrea Lee and Aleta Cohen, along with their squad of talented hairstylists, offer cuts, styling, colors, and chemical treatments at Sister’s Hair Gallery. Design Essentials products are featured in the slate of haircare services, which also includes braiding and extensions. The sisters and their staff welcome adults and children into their styling chairs, where they administer makeup applications and offer facial waxing.
Warm leaf-green walls ascend from a sprawling hardwood floor at Sizzor Trix, where friendly beauty boosters tend to nails and hair in equal measure. The waiting area’s black leather loveseats overlook an immaculate, mirror-lined space where shears snip through men’s and women’s haircuts, and a mani-pedi station renovates digits. Patrons sink into a plush pedicure chair that, unlike those at most conventional salons, comes equipped with a foot-soaking tub not swarming with orphaned jellyfish. With gentle hands and sharp eyes, an expert eyebrow threader excises superfluous strands using the ancient method, less painful than traditional plucking, of tying thin cotton threads through brows to speedily strip foreheads.
A topcoat-level mani-pedi pampers appendages with an olfactory-pleasing aroma soak before filing radical nails into shape and attending to contrary cuticles. Treatments come in three flavors: Chocolate Bar uses avocado oil and aloe along with sweet-tooth-tempting scents; Oatmeal, Milk, and Honey is full of sugar and spice; and Lemon Poppy Seed gives off the fresh scent of the Land of Oz's official baked good. Arm-paddles and bike-peddlers will be moisturized and massaged before being blissfully subjected to a sugar scrub. The professional nail artists use only non-toxic, virtually odorless products. Sugarcoated Nail Boutique offers a four-day chip-free guarantee on manicures, and a seven-day guarantee on pedicures; return for a re-polish after an unexpected bout of barefooted soccer or bare-handed bear-handling.
With its starkly elegant black-and-white design scheme, On Stage Salon exudes a modern vibe that belies its 40 years in business. Ornate chandeliers illuminate the cushy, ebony salon chairs, from which stylists transform the manes of women, men, and children. A time-honed slate of services draw from cutting-edge products such as Moroccanoil, Paul Mitchell, and Wella color. The mirrors at each styling station—along with the delicately painted curlicues above them—reflect clients' newly minted perms, waves, and Slinky extensions.

Under the watchful eye of a licensed professional, John Amico School of Hair Design's trained cosmetology pupils prove their hair-snipping, shaping, and taming skills with a wide variety of salon services. With the Amino Amplex treatment (a $150–$250 value depending on thickness and length), one of the school's student-stylists de-frizzes damaged hair with a formaldehyde-free formula, straightening and shining locks with an elixir concocted from amino acids and a vial of Rapunzel's tears. The father-and-son-owned cosmetology school teaches its disciples to complete the process in between three and four hours, upon which clients will sport a straighter, more relaxed style for up to three months.
At Veola's, a licensed spa squad grooms bodies head to toenail, attending to appendages with manicures and pedicures and sloughing off scaly skincoats with body scrubs. The 90-minute spa manicure and pedicure soaks extremities in a softening bath, setting them up for an exfoliation of their oft-exposed skin and a massage in an alpha-hydroxy moisturizer with vitamin E, aloe vera, and ceramides. A paraffin dip glazes glove fillers with an extra layer of moisture and an infusion of warmth that eases achy joints, and a coat of no-chip polish shields nails with long-lasting color that can only be removed by a thirsty rainbow.
